If you're ever in the Wrigleyville area & want some good music(free DJ) hit John Barleycorn's on Clark just south of Addison. You get the college crowd mixed w/locals dressed in casual wear. We go there alot for birthdays & such.
Also try Martini Ranch (on Chicago & Halsted?) for a more loungy bar scene.

Brewhaus in Springfield is a great place to go... at least it used to be. I haven't been back to Illinois in 5 or 6 years. They have a huge selection of beer and a perfect setup for the bar, booths, and tables. The draft beer is very cheap, with pinball and darts in the back. It's only downfall is the moldy smell of the place (I've heard it described much more colorfully), but you don't really notice it after you've been in there for a bit.

There was a place called Tracy's Landmark on 55th street in Westmont that had/has (it's been a while) good food with a decent selection of craft brews with different brew specials on friday nights. They used to serve decent Mexican food on Thurs, Fri, and Saturday nights.

They have an AMAZING selection of brews on tap and their food is to die for.
Thanks for sharing with us all. I myself enjoy a good eatery with a nice selection of different brews to sample. The wife and I will have to give them a try as they?re not far from me at all.

I also enjoy BWW for a good burger, some wings and some brews. The wife and I were in Michigan City Indiana last weekend and decided to have dinner at the one on Franklin. I enjoy dining at our local BWW, especially on UFC fight nights. We went into the one in Ind. and were seated promptly. It had the usual amount of televisions but they only had the fight on 2 sets. They had every type of sport on you could imagine. The disappointing part was the juke box was playing so loud, you couldn?t hear a television in the place. Food (soda no beer) and service was good but we couldn?t believe how loud the place was. We caught the tail end of UFC 120 and headed back across the border.
